Mid garnet in colour with a hint of tangerine to the hue. The nose provides ripe Morello cherry and subtle strawberry fruits accompanied by savoury notes and a dash of pot pourri. A medium-bodied palate offers delicate forest fruits intermingled with subtle spice accents and a hint of oak. Long and persistent on the finish with firm but velvety tannins, best from 2023 to 2035.

Aromas of bright red berries, hibiscus and thyme. Medium-bodied with tight tannins. Bright and fresh with herbal complexity and a chocolate finish. Persistent. Drink now. Screw cap.

The 2020 The Nebbiolo has attractive fruit ripeness and tannic shape in the mouth, and it drinks like a juicy Langhe Neb. Drink it soon to soak up the chinotto, Campari, rose petals and star anise.
